Adult Sunday School meets at 9:30 a.m. during the school year. Nursery care and Sunday School for children and youth happen simultaneously. Offerings vary from discussions of book and video resources to Bible study and special presentations of current topics and events.

- Beyond the Dream: The Life and Legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. for Contemporary Christians
- Book studies on Being Mortal by Atul Gawande, An Altar in the World by Barbara Brown Taylor, and Pastors Sound Off: Causes We Can't Keep Quiet About
- Courses on gender identity, aging, Christmas carols, understanding the Bible
- Visits from the wider community including a class on Respecting Indigenous Cultures, a visit from Rabbi Moti Rieber, discussion with transgender activist Stephanie Mott

Midweek Book Study
Tuesdays from 11:30am-1pm via Zoom
Led by Sue Zschoche
The Tuesday book group works its way through books about the Bible, theology, and contemporary issues. This group is full of laughter, big questions, and has become a bit like family....and you can be certain there is always an empty seat at the table where they are looking forward to welcoming new faces into the mix. To find out what book they're reading right now, please reach out to email@example.com. Or just stop in any Tuesday to join in!
Beginning February 2nd, the group will be reading Rachel Held Evans' book, Inspired. The book is a thoughtful commentary on the Bible: how we Christians understand it (or don't understand it), how we sometimes struggle with it, how it still can still speak to us. We hope that you will join us.
